Yes, we have been made aware of this bug and are working on a fix for 
the next release.  As you guessed, we are not properly releasing old 
sessions from the desktops list of permitted users.  We never anticipated
users running with the option turned on all the time, it was intended for
debugging purposes, but it appears that more and more people are using it
in production.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

That's quite odd, is this still a fresh Win2K box? Does it have all the 
Service packs applied?  Have the performance counters been disabled or 
Otherwise changed?


btw, on a personal note, what is my Government using Condor for? (We can
take this part offline, since it's completely off topic for the list)
